Can I help pay for your alternative medical care?

I just learned about an amazing company to help you with the out of pocket costs of alternative medical care. A few years ago I met Dane Johnson. He battled Crohn’s and Colitis for years, his Mom, Phyllis, watching him suffer. Phyllis, like me, was working for a “beltway bandit”. One of the government contractors around the Washington DC I-495 beltway. She saw first hand how costly his successful recovery was. Successful  as he eventually became an “All-Star Healed Hero” I featured in the Crohn’s And Colitis Summit. Realizing many would have difficulty with the out of pocket costs of

Mindset Is Everything

Hello there loyal follower. It’s been a while since I posted here. I’ve been doing a lot of research which I’m excited to share more of soon, and communicating more on the One Great Gut email list and my facebook page. I wrote this last week after getting out of the Hospital, and the numerous thankful replies Iv’e received blew me away, unexpectedly. I seriously just wrote this to help get myself out of a health dip. I got real, I got vulnerable, I tell it like it is.  Hope you enjoy reading as much as I did writing it. Mindset Is

Last night I was headed to meet some friends. Friends that I love being around. Friends that I don’t see enough and was looking forward to seeing for the first time in a while. On the other side of the round-about, still in my complex the car stalled. (Remember when I mentioned that on Cancer Treatment Day 3)? I wasn’t too alarmed, she’s stalled twice in the past week This time was different She wasn’t going anywhere You ever see someone trying to walk their dog while the little one has dug all four paws into the ground, resisting moving

Empathic Illnesses: Do You Absorb Other People’s Symptoms? by Dr. Judy Orloff

Empathic illnesses are those in which you manifest symptoms that are not your own. Many patients have come to me labeled“agoraphobic” with panic disorders, chronic depression, fatigue, pain, or mysterious ailments that respond only partially to medications or psychotherapy. Some were nearly housebound or ill for years. They’d all say, “I dread being in crowds. Other people’s anger, stress, and pain drain me, and I need a lot of alone time to refuel my energy.” When I took a close history of all these patients I found that they were what I call “physical empaths:” people whose bodies are so

I am not your Guru – Ulcerative Colitis is your Guru

Seems everyday I meet people with Crohns Disease or Ulcerative Colitis. Is it just me or are more and more people being diagnosed and openly sharing their diagnosis? This happened last night at a networking event, and during a business phone call. In total, those I spoke to knew 5 people with IBD, or they themselves had IBD. This may sound crazy but I consider the diagnosis as nothing more than a label, a disempowering distinction, albeit a strong one, from the conventional medical establishment. Nothing more than a marketing word. My invitation is to choose an empowering story, an empowering

Dear President-Elect Trump

I wrote this emotional story as the Vaxxed movement requested this after Robert F. Kennedy Jr. was chosen to lead a panel on Vaccine Safety. If they are safe, there’s nothing to worry about, right?  I recently dove deep into the FDA’s Adverse Event Reporting System (FAERS). In comparing marijuana to pharmaceutical drugs they found 0 primary suspect deaths to marijuana, compared to 10,008 from 17 FDA-approved drugs. For secondary contributing to death they found 279 for marijuana compared to 11,687 for the same 17 FDA-approved drugs.  From 1997 to 2005 there were over 21,000 deaths due to the primary

The $18 Miracle For Gut Health

Many years ago I read in a book about a large hot water bag that you can lay on top of.  It was in one of Kevin Trudeau’s books Natural Cures They Don’t Want you to Know About, I believe.    It was called the Fomentek Hot & Cold Water Bag.   Well at first I think I purchased a medium sized one and that was good but I needed more surface area so I went for the large bag.    I have since probably gone through about at least 15 or 20 of these bags over the years, because they do wear
